Subject Re: [background] Make a new list?

Isn't this what newsgroups are for?  I did a quick search from
"programming" in my new-reader, and found three general purpose newgroups.
comp.programming, comp.programming.literate, and comp.programming.threads.
This doesn't even take into account the newsgroups devoted to particular

I don't think there is a real need for this list.  I think rather, we need
to point people to the correct resource when they ask for help.
